The Vital Records department is responsible for the filing of all births and deaths that occur in the City of Troy. Vital records are maintained according to the requirements of the New York State Health Department. The office also issues qualified applicants with certified copies of the certificates associated with these events. Uncertified copies of older certificates are available for genealogy research.

In addition to birth and death certificates, the department provides assistance with corrections, acknowledgements of paternity, burial and disposition permits.
